Pennsylvania's Lehigh University has announced that it will offer a new concentration in Business Analytics as part of the school's Flex MBA program.
The new concentration will include 12 units of business analytics and big data-related curriculum, and will expose students to the collection of data, along with data storage, predictive models and the application of business analytics principles to today's business organizations.
The required courses for the new concentration include "Data Management for Managers" and then either "Predictive Analytics in Business" or "Business Analytics for Decision Making." Elective classes cover topics in econometric software, financial management, and more.
Lehigh Flex MBA students will be able to complete the new concentration either online or in-class.
